The committee has not chosen a name for the war, and announced that suggestions for names should be transferred to the committee by Remembrance Day, at which time it will make its decision.
It currently appears that the three final options which will be presented to the committee are: War of the North, Shield of the North War, and The Second Lebanon War.
Minister Jacob Edery, who chairs the committee, explained that in light of pressure exerted by the bereaved families, it has been decided to convene the committee and declare the summer campaign a war.
Once a name has been decided, it will still need the government's approval.
Some of the names that have been suggested for the conflict include War of the North, Peace for the North War, War of the Captives, Operation Homeland Defense, The Second Lebanon War.
